CLASSICAL NOTES: Matthias Pintscher conducts orchestra
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – This week’s Wednesday Spotlight for the Grand Teton Music Festival is on “The Collective,” a Nashville-based group of singer-songwriter vocalists who have come together in creative, a cappella union. Group member Isaac Hayden, a former Jacksonite turned Nashville musician, describes the unified crooners as a tight-knit family, a camaraderie that is reflected in their music.
Thursday’s Musician’s Choice concert will feature music by Mozart, Beethoven, and Johann Nepomuk Hummel, with special guests Zeyda Ruga Suzuki on the hauntingly gorgeous and strikingly unique glass harmonica and Hidetaro Suzuki on violin.
Friday and Saturday’s Festival Orchestra Concert will be led by guest conductor Matthias Pintscher, who will steer the orchestra through Ravel’s Alborada del gracioso, Stravinsky’s Petrushka, and his very own Chute d’e-toiles. Don’t miss your chance to see a living composer conducting his own music, a view of “classical” music played in true original.
Tuesday’s free Inside The Music concert will be “A Night At The Opera,” as led by the ever-charming Roger Oyster. The evening will feature music by Wagner, Rossini, Verdi and Beethoven.
